The Homoerotic Photography of Carl Van Vechten

Carl Van Vechten was an American writer and photographer. Van Vechten’s arrival in New York in 1906 coincided with two of America’s most significant cultural movements: the Jazz Age and the Harlem Renaissance. Both events shaped his art and life as a New York socialite. Although married, Van Vechten became one of the leading figures of New York’s gay scene, and he photographed many prominent gay cultural icons.
